It’s that time of year again to go GLAMPING! Not familiar with the phrase? Think glamorous camping and you’re there!
Each year we grab a bunch of mates and head down to the wildest (and most remote) parts of Britain armed with tents, a stash of home brewed Limoncello and some girly essentials. We’ve put together a guide of glamping essentials to see you through….
Glamorous tent of course and none of those fiddly time wasting mechanisms that take hours to put up. A pop up simple stylish tent that will take seconds to erect. Ta da!
Jewel-coloured plastic wine glasses, a selection of sparkling wines and some home brewed Limoncello is a glamping must! This year we’re all making our own renditions; you can use any fruit, mix it up and get creative. Check online for your favourite recipe!
Pretty headwear – your hair is going to get a bit messy and if you don’t have access to showers (err then you’re not properly glamping) you’re going to need something pretty to spruce up your barnet. We like bows, flowers and glittery bands preferably and you can even make your own out of strips of fabric. Put good use to that old going-out top you love but can’t fit into anymore. Cut a strip about 12cm wide by about 95cm long and wrap around your head…perfect! If you’re no good with a sewing machine then try one of the cute and on-trend crocheted bow headbands by Lowie in our accessories collection.
A great makeup palette. Face it you don’t want to be lugging around tonnes of makeup, but you still want to keep your usual glamorous face in check. Try an all-in-one compact catering for lips, cheeks and base. Eyeshadows can always double as blusher and vice versa. Plus the mirror comes in handy!
Silk sleeping bag liner….mmm luxury!
Inflatable sofa or chair. And it has to be a bright colour.
This is by no means an exhaustive list and the general rule of glamorous camping is, if in doubt take it!
